Jeff Schneider escapes layers of inversion, nestled between the mountain peaks behind him, at the top of East Canyon Sunday. Traveling by bike is an environmentally sound choice since vehicles are the largest all-around polluters. Trapping soot and toxic fumes, inversions are the meteorological scourge of populated mountain valleys everywhere. Although the Wasatch Front hasn't had a heavy inversion season for a few years, the insidious gunk is often hazardous to the health, prompting restrictions on wood-burning stoves and measures to curb fine-particulate pollution and carbon monoxide. Moisture spread across Utah Sunday ahead of a weak Pacific weather system with light rain in some areas. Tuesday's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies.
